One fine summer day I whispered " Oh Lord it would be so nice to have peaches." To my surprise God heard me. We have lived in this home since 2002. We live in the Smokey Mountain area, which is not conducive to peach trees
. Being that our garden was located in our front yard, we had several obstacles we had to go through. One of them was this big tree which we had to duck under to get to our garden. Come to find out it was my miracle peach tree.
